Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany, currently ranked #32 on the ATP tour, has traded in his 3 striped ensembles to be a head-to-toe-to-hand Wilson player. He will debut Wilson's newest lines for men beginning January 2011.

“Wilson is the brand I trust with my equipment [he currently plays with the Six.One 95 BLX] and has helped me throughout my career." said Kohlschreiber. "I’m excited about their renewed focus on apparel and footwear and that I am able to be a part of the new program.”

This signing is another strong card in a growing hand of players (10 pros and 15 juniors) who wear the brand on court. Since Fall of 2009, when they brought in a new design group, Wilson has consistently delivered a tennis collection for men and women that is fashion forward, comfortable and technical. I look forward to showing you what's in store for 2011.

“We are extremely excited to have Philipp as part of our team,” said Claire Ortiz, Global Business Director for Wilson Footwear & Apparel. “We are looking forward to working closely with him on our product initiatives as we work toward creating the highest level of core and elite performance footwear and apparel product.”
